  • Panther pride
  • Libraries serve as the heart of communities

    Though almost nine months retired as director of the public library, I continue to be a citizen advocate for libraries throughout the state.  I recently received a copy of an article that appeared in “Planning Commission Journal”, Summer 2009. The cover story for this issue was entitled “Libraries, At the Heart of Our Communities” and the editor of this publication goes on for seven pages to extol  the importance of libraries to vibrant, healthy communities.

  • Soccer Panthers fall

    Soccer is gaining a following at Carroll County High School, but so far the Panthers have not been able to put a win in the books.

    Undefeated Bryan Station of Lexington came calling at Panther Field Saturday, August 29. Even though there was no win for the Panthers losing 0-5, they did manage to keep from having the game called by a 10-0 mercy rule as was the outcome last year.

    The Bryan Station Defenders took 10 minutes off the clock before scoring as the Panthers ran a close defense. Goalie Josh Pence had several saves as Bryan Station brought it to him.

  • CARR ON THE BRIDGE

    The Trimble Banner

    Depending on one’s point of view, the latest twist in the Milton-Madison Bridge project could be seen as a “perfect storm” or a “harmonic convergence.”

    Love it or hate it, one thing is clear – the consultants hired to help determine whether to repair or replace the bridge linking Trimble County, Ky., to Jefferson County, Ind., have chosen to apply for a substantial federal grant that would help pay for replacing the superstructure on the existing piers.

    The streets of downtown Bedford were filled with fun and frivolity during the annual Bedford Bash on Friday, Aug. 21. Here are just a few moments from the evening's festivities.

    Trimble County Judge-Executive Randy Stevens, addressing the magistrates at the Aug. 17 Fiscal Court meeting, appeared to grudgingly accept the idea that going for the TIGER grant is the best option for getting a new span between Milton and Madison.

  • Basketball boosters continue fundraiser

    The Carroll County Panther basketball team boosters will continue sponsoring bingo on the first and third Tuesdays of September through November at the National Guard Armory with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. and play beginning at 7 p.m.

    The Lady Panthers are also playing in the same tournament over Christmas, but Yager said he believes they are in better shape financially than his team.
